Batman #355 - Don Newton art

Batman v1 #355, 1983 - Still pining for Bruce Wayne, the Catwoman tries to eliminate the other woman in his life, Vicki Vale. Don Newton's drawings (often submerged beneath Alfredo Alcala's inks) are vivid and expressive. Batman's encounter with a panther (pages 12-13) and the final confrontation (pages 19-20) are a testament to Newton's aesthetic skills. The best scene is also the most nuanced one: Selina Kyle, fuming with jealousy in her own richly furnished apartment (opening splash). Other artists in this issue include Ed Hannigan and Dick Giordano (cover). This is number 11 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues.
